Ok, Case: Silverstone Full ATX Case, Motherboard: MSI FXA - GD80.

This is what im planning to do, 1x Graphics card in PCIEX16 Slot 1, 1x Graphics card in PCIEX16 Slot 2.

The choice of graphics cards what I have is the following: HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition 2GB, ,HD 6850 2GB Edition, HD 6870x2 2GB Edition.


There are the cards. Ive got a 900w 80+ Powersupply already which has four PCIE plugs.


Im wondering what gpu crossfire setup will gain the best performance and future proof in games via fps.



Thanks, hope you can help.

Hello
why wont you go with the newest 7xxx series? might as well get the newest thing right?
get two 7850's that will run you $500 or get a single powerfull card such as 7970 or gtx 680.

^lol

@electricfirebolt, go for the powerful single-card. You will have less complaints and problems. A GTX 680 is the best.

6870x2 should be better or the same than a 7850. Go for the single card solution since it's less of a hassle. From what I read, it's driver hell if you plan on running it on crossfire and also it'll cost you more.

The difference between the 7850 and the 7870 is 100 bucks so it's pretty much a matter of how much money you're willing to spend for what kind of performance.
